Make sure that the div which has the time/date has position: relative; z-index: 1;
and (possibly but not always necessary) the div or object tag with the swf file has position: relataive; z-index: -1;
Make sure the swf object tag has
<param name="wmode" value="transparent"/>
into the object tag and
into the embed tag.
Position: relative is needed to make the z-index work.
